One of the challenges of the Sask Youth Apprenticeship program is to complete the Young Worker Readiness Certificate course.
Inexperienced young workers are more likely to get hurt on the job and are less likely to know about employment standards than more experienced workers.
The course will help middle and high school students prepare for entry into the job market. It introduces workplace health and safety legislation, and workplace rights and responsibilities for employees and employers.
The Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship (SYA) program gives high school students the opportunity to learn more about skilled trades career pathways and gain a head start on their skilled trades career, should they register as an apprentice after graduation.
